Warriors receive perfect score in latest APR

The University of Hawai’i basketball team received a perfect score of 1,000 in the Academic Performance Rate (APR) for the 2017-18 academic year, according to statistics released by the NCAA this week.

The perfect score for 2017-18 raised UH’s multi-year score to 956 (it was at 947 last year).

The APR is a formula used by the NCAA to encourage schools to retain scholarship athletes and maintain their eligibility for competition. Teams with a four-year score below 930 (or a two-year average below 950) can be penalized with scholarship reductions, practice restrictions and post-season bans.

The multi-year rate reflects the average of the four most recent academic years. In this case, UH’s current score of 956 represents the team’s average from 2014-2018.

The men’s basketball team program was one of eight UH teams that received a perfect score of 1,000 for the 2017-18 academic year. The others were men’s golf, men’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis, men’s volleyball, women’s golf, women’s soccer and women’s swimming and diving.

In Big West Conference men’s basketball, Hawai’i was one of four teams with perfect 1,000 scores for the 2017-18 academic year. The others are Cal State Fullerton, UC Irvine and UC Davis.

CSUN received a score of 792, dropping its multi-year average to 888. The Matadors are expected to suffer a penalty of reduced practice time.

  1. I’m glad they are doing well in the classroom. Coaches need to move their butts and sign some quality recruits. The silence is deafening.
